The University of Toledo’s College Credit Plus program gives college-bound high school students the opportunity to earn college credit and high school credit simultaneously. This gives students the advantage of starting the transition to college early, while reducing the cost and length of time to receive a degree. High school students can take part in the college experience, interacting with full-time college students and university faculty, while experiencing the rigor of college-level courses.

Getting Started in College Credit Plus
Students who are interested in participating in the College Credit Plus program should consult with their high school guidance counselor to determine which courses are still needed for graduation; this will help students and their Success Coach when it comes time to create their college schedule. Next, they will complete The University of Toledo College Credit Plus application form.
